So I was reading about this on BGR.com, here a few bullets from Job’s biography, and as much as I admire him this looks like BS and More BS…
“I will spend my last dying breath if I need to, and I will spend every penny of Apple’s $40 billion in the bank, to right this wrong,” Jobs said, according to Isaacson’s book. “I’m going to destroy Android, because it’s a stolen product. I’m willing to go thermonuclear war on this.”
My Thoughts – Stolen from who? come one it might do the same thing in the end but it doesn’t look alike, as well if this is the case I think you stole from Microsoft and Palm…. (WM 6 looked like crap but did everything the basic iPhone does)
Jobs would later meet with Google’s CEO Eric Schmidt to discuss settling the lawsuit. That meeting, according to the book, did not go well. ”I don’t want your money,” Jobs is said to have told Schmidt. “If you offer me $5 billion, I won’t want it. I’ve got plenty of money. I want you to stop using our ideas in Android, that’s all I want.”
My Thoughts – Maybe Apple should stop stealing form their developers and other mobile OS’s (especially Android with iOS5) before he opens his mouth like that, when the first iPhone came out and all Cydia developers did amazing things with the iPhone apple simply stole from them even the GUI of iBooks was stolen!!! come on….
Apple’s new CEO Tim Cook has made clear his intention to continue running Apple as Jobs did, and it appears a major part of his legacy is the fight against Google’s actions with Android, which Jabs said amount to “grand theft.”
My Thoughts – Again another stupid comment, instead of vesting time against a Company that innovated put the money towards more innovation…. bottom line is WE the customer will get more out of it.
